the u.s. secretary of state cancels a visit to moscow and heads to brussels instead discuss iran's threats were made on its nuclear deal commitments. next stop there will be russia which will also feature high on the agenda also to come amid growing concern over civilian deaths from u.s. drone strikes the pentagon develops the new missile a weapon spinning blades and supposedly more accurate than existing technology and that the french left wing media from leukemia has been depicted as a russian interests a video game released by president emmanuel. we give it
a try. but i welcome just gone 10 i am here in moscow you watching r.t. international the u.s. secretary of state has canceled what was to be an informal visit to moscow diverting to brussels at the last minute instead to let's get the details on why this is happening but artie's for frank good morning to you why then the change of plan. andrew good morning well it looks like it's all about iraq and indeed it was clear that he was supposed to arrive in moscow later on monday it was meant to be the 1st official visit of my compare as secretary of state to russia but then at the very last moment he changed his plans in the pilots
were told that the destination should be brussels guess why again it's all because of iran but before we go into russia when the u.s. top diplomat was asked about what he's going to talk about here he gave a certain list but obviously iran was on top of that take a listen. iran is the major destabilizing in influence in the middle east and we aim to fix that our aim is not war our aim is a change in the behavior of the iranian leadership we hope the iranian people will get what they finally want what they did so richly deserve well i can tell you that mr compare who has shown a lot of flexibility at least in terms of logistics recently last week he changed his trip plans twice all because of iran but it seems this
time he even got the folks in brussels by surprise by doing this we would be here all day with a busy agenda salute ceduna day and if we manage to arrange a meeting he's always welcome obviously but there are no precise plans to at the moment as we continue to fully support the nuclear deal with iran as full implementation it has been and continues to be for us a key element of nonproliferation and depreciation at that nobody has been that each and so we continue to support it as much as we can with on our instruments and on our political will that this is very well known i think both in washington and in tehran. well let me just take a moment to remind you about what's happening with the so-called or when nuclear deal right now last week to iran decided that it will stop playing by some of the rules of the egremont and the announcement came exactly one year
after washington unilaterally pulled out of the deal what to iran wants now is to actually make europe china and russia teach the u.s. a lesson and force them back into complying so perhaps mike from pale is going to brussels to discuss all that but it's unclear how it's going to play out and who is going to have the upper hand and these talks so to say because as we remember last year europe was absolutely not happy with this kind of behavior when it comes to the u.n. nuclear deal by the americans but this time with this latest move from tehran europe saying that iran's doing the wrong thing as well and they are not happy with that either. the european union will remain committed to the continued to fall and effective implementation of the nuclear the stomach and when i speak about
us i mean europeans who once preserve and salvage the vienna g.c. . iran deal because it provides additional security and transparency for germany and europe because if of the 20 of them of them are getting we will work to maintain the framework of the 2015 deal in spite of the american decision and we will do so in a concrete manner by maintaining our political engagements by ensuring that our companies can stay in iran and also by getting all parties to pursue negotiations for a larger indispensable deal iran has agreed to vital compliance measures if they break that deal then there will be consequences in terms of how european powers react so we the iranians to think very long and hard before they break. the end of today nothing could be worse than iran leave in the agreement there are new sanctions today from europe because iran has so far all respected the commitments it has
undertaken in this country commands are not respected the question of their considered. while still even though the u.s. attorney of state is not coming here he will head to saatchi later this week where he'll still talk with. and vladimir putin and obviously there was going to be there's going to be a lot of tough discussions on iran and you can also expect them to talk about venezuela north korea ukraine and syria up obviously no surprises here but the most interesting one will be the conversation on what to do with tehran what to do with the iran nuclear deal. ok yes certainly plenty to get through there thankfully that was artie's. pennsic and had reportedly developed a secret weapon a modification of the hellfire missile to take out targets while minimizing
civilian casualties deployed by drone it has been nicknamed the ninja bomb because it kills using blades rather than explosives. reports. drone warfare has long been part of the u.s. government's war on terror and it's gotten ugly on more than one occasion. killing people by these drones basically sitting on a screen and eliminating people. dehumanizing them treating them. as if you know from some other planet not giving them a basic right of proving their innocence i mean it it violates one norms of justice
on top of that it's all classified so leaking the methodology behind what human rights groups have called a method for extrajudicial executions can get you in a lot of trouble for daniel hale and n.s.a. officer and now suspected whistleblower that could mean up to 15 years in jail that echo's chelsea manning say she's just recently been released from jail for refusing to testify before a grand jury but she could return soon as she's already got another subpoena now to be fair u.s. leaders have long talked about their deep conviction over civilian deaths the architecture of the legal architecture around to the use of drone strikes or other kinetic strikes wasn't as precise as it should have been and there's no doubt that civilians were killed but shouldn't have been. i think that over the last several years we have worked very hard to avoid and prevent those kinds
of. tragedies from taking place apparently it was u.s. president barack obama who ordered the creation of a new missile device that would increase the percentage and accuracy of these predator drone. strikes and minimize civilian casualties it's apparently called the ninja bomb now it may be the pentagon's worst kept secret they have not officially confirmed it but so far several military officials have said that it's being used it's argued that the new missile might enhance the image of the united states in the countries that are already subject to u.s. military drone strike operations unlike a regular missile it doesn't explode instead it deploys 6 blades that fan out of its casing moments before impact blades are so sharp they can cut through vehicles and slice their target into pieces so we've got blades flinging through the air in order to reduce civilian casualties sounds plausible enough apparently the new ninja bomb has already been used in iraq libya syria somalia and yemen now the
mastermind behind the suicide bombing on the u.s.s. cole back in the year 2000 was apparently taken out by a ninja bomb in january according to pentagon reports so is this new missile the answer will it improve the image of the drone strike program in the eyes of the american public what do you think of the drone strike program. ok with it i know nothing about it it's pretty awful actually we have this thing now called the ninja bomb and what it is is it and when it detonates it sends blades through the air and the idea is this will minimize civilian casualties we can pick the terrorist we want to kill send the ninja bomb and fewer civilians will be killed you know that the blades kill the. terrorists and not the civilians it doesn't seem like that you can target maybe specific people with that seems like you'll just. spread out a lot of. a lot of damage i think that's also did a pretty good program them limit civilian casualties are going to do not that's not
happening i think if somebody suggested that. i had i don't think that is even real i don't think it really busy. will reduce civilian casualties i think this is a. pretty sickly propaganda weapon you want to put it that way to make people feel that there is a kinder gentler way of killing people when in fact this is through assassination which. you have declaration of human rights i think this is some way of trying to placate the public in the united states and probably remorse or around the world with the technology is through and right now the kind of precision that they're talking about. is essential you know possible and the notion of assassination whether precise or generalized is so totally unacceptable but we have asked the pentagon to comment on these reports one that you know when we get
a reply. the french left wing leader sean has denounced the anti russian and pro nato histeria of the u. does come after he was featured in a video game released by emmanuel micron's youth movement in the form of a russian insect r.t. show that the gave the game a try. as almost fight tooth and nail in the forthcoming european elections it seems that they've got a new weapon to utilize it this video game now it's similar to one that we've known since the $1980.00 s. so it does feel a little bit retro and this is the main character here the idea is clear this is meant to represent natalie so who is top of the list for on march in those elections and she is the harrowing. so if natalie was so is the heroine of this game who are the baddies well it's pretty clear on the right it's
a marquee in the pen with the national rally and on the left it's usual nuke militia with france about this even a bit of donald trump thrown in there for good mix. no collusion no obstruction just going to caricature. shies grotesque more overt included donald trump in the game although trump is not a european leader and an american one so it's unclear what he has to do with that i think is just p.r. for just stick of p.r. so the name of the game is pretty simple now clearly was trying to find the missing stars from the european flag and that's because they've been stolen by those baddies so let's find those stars. come on.
us. while the idea of using a video game to perhaps try and boost the youth vote isn't something new in fact it was done by france back in 2017 with the election this is of course the 1st big test that matt korn has been through since he was elected president back in 2017 so if he wants to avoid game over then perhaps we need to do more than produce a 2 d. game to fend off that mounting pressure from the left the right and the center and of course to raise those gloomy freighting charlotte even ski r.t. paris. storm the way for you this hour donald trump wants the front runner for the democratic presidential nomination joe biden to be investigated over his alleged political meddling in ukraine we'll have a look at that in more detail just after this.
one else seemed wrong but all wrong just don't call. me. yet to say proud just to become educated and engaged with equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. we have a situation that is very new and that's why. it's like a free labor for the war were to when people were dying but in the morning and there was no and go to school or do the 2 so that the boy it was through to the
right of the world to move and to carry the as a medical mentor to the widespread simplicity is good code of people today. in many diseases because of this would you fully broke up the. welcome back conniving u.s. president told trump wants attorney general william begin investigating the front runner for the democratic presidential nomination joe biden over his alleged meddling in ukrainian political affairs something biden denies democrats say trump is just trying to get rid of a strong opponent because don of his more on the story. he is an american politician of such scale that he might even get a holywood produced bio pic appearing in theaters his son is an entrepreneur doing
business with other countries and some people suspect that the father of political shotgun is using his reputation of fire power to make sure his sons business doesn't sail into choppy waters this is what you may have heard in the news for years about donald trump and his son junior yet now it's the story about trump's 2020 democratic rival joe biden and his son he has already got a trump trademarked nickname and in fact has been on the president's mind for a while one of the democrats. said that he he sleepy person. said that he heard from a lot of foreign leaders and they want him to be president of course they do so they could continue to rip of the united states and. i said general community
because. i felt like joe biden to but this time it's more than just junior school style name calling because trump suspects biden pulled quite a number of diplomatic leavers to have a prosecutor who was making his son's business difficult fired outrageous behavior if it had happened in america and perhaps even worse though since all of the above allegedly happened in another country in ukraine in fact before announcing his presidential ambitions biden gave plenty of reason for speculation. a commitment from poor shouldn't go they would take action against a state prosecutor they did tell you not get the hugo hours i so you know i get. a 1000000000 i'm going to be leaving here i think it was about 6 hours i look guys and leave in 6 hours and if the prosecutor is not fired you're not getting the
money well son of a. fire trump almost sent his lawyer rudy giuliani to ukraine to investigate but giuliani canceled this trip because the fallout was ferocious explain to me why biden shouldn't be investigated if his son got millions from a russian loving crooked ukrainian only gold while he was vice president and point man for ukraine ukrainians are investigating and your fellow dems are interfering election is 70 months away let's on straight now and when i say ferocious i mean for roche us it is highly unethical for the president's personal lawyer to tell me what visuals from a foreign government to see if they can influence somehow the upcoming presidential election we've had enough of them we will do everything we can up to the breaking
of the wall it's a very it's a but trail of democracy to work with other countries to affect our elections it's just a flat out betrayal seriously mr president hold your horses stop this persecution it's funny though the democrats never seem to like it when the tables turn even if there is hard you know hard seeming evidence that something could be very foul here after all they've conducted this false investigation for the last 2 years costing taxpayers millions and millions of dollars really just abusing this president has family why would the democrats not now say that if there's an allegation of a possible president out in front of an election why would the democrats not want that followed through on why would they even want to nominate somebody who looked this suspicious to me they should be the ones calling for the investigation. and the scandal shows the intensity of america's political desire for justice while trump must go down biden can get
a pass after all is everyone's favorite grandpa. the man of the british conservative party would suffer a crushing defeat of a general election were held today according to a new poll in a further humiliation in a survey also found the new breaks party would beat the tories with the current main opposition labor coming out on top the party's leader nigel fries says that the frustration of the british voters has reached a boiling point we've got a 2 party system that now serves nothing but itself there is a complete breakdown of trust between the people in this country and our politicians and frankly they revealed themselves to be grossly incompetent where the new poll found that for a party would snap up a sizeable number of seats in the house of commons while the tories would lose a record number of them pays in their worst ever electoral result it also suggests
to the labor party would emerge victorious from an election but fall short of reaching a majority and with european elections looming large the brics the party is also on their track for big wins in brussels the u.k.'s 2 main parties have already been punished by voters in local elections held earlier this month three's a maze conservatives lost a 3rd of their seats in some councils while the opposition didn't do much better we asked people in london why voters are turning their backs on the traditional parties. really both parties are bad for each other labor and conservative in terms of delivery of bricks in the general public is so fed up with the situation regarding threats but i think people uneasy trust in sight and disappeared in parliament in fighting the arguments trees by a government that promised to deliver british but they promised delivery over
a month ago and it wasn't delivered has failed to deliver on the referendum 60 and there is no sign of it being delivered and it seems that politics is gummed up completely because of this last strike some of the prime minister says what she's trying to do is try to win a popularity contest procedure look up. it doesn't surprise me that knowledge of wrote the book or the search so. finally divers from russia's net jean underwater expedition have been studying the remains of a 19th century shipwreck found at the bottom of the black sea and in the process they have stumbled across some long lost treasures.
and that is the news from here on r.t. we're back with more for you at the top of the hour. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the baltic from clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home fields where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and
a fresh perspective from time used to surprising us all why not if you think. i'm going to talk about football not for you or else you think i was going to go. by the way what is it that sliding here. in 2040 you know bloody revolution to to correct the demonstrations one for being relatively peaceful political protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it just a lawyer here i mean your list put video through to me in the new bill is that i new split needle the former ukrainian president recalls the events of 2014. of those who took it invested over $5000000000.00 to assist ukraine in these and other goals that will ensure
a secure and prosperous and democratic. politicians to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president i'm sure. some want to press. you to go on to be close it's like that before 3 in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters of our. friendship. as opposed to see on his attorney one name for you. 101 was a little bit. more which it. was a renewal if i give you 2 you know you get out just to know people you see posting

problem to a max kaiser financial survival guide. looking forward to your pension account. yonks this is what happens to pensions in britain. watched as a report. hello and welcome to cross talk where all things are considered peter lavelle donald trump's foreign policy is on steroids and the game is called forced regime change and like a flu that won't go away russia gate appears to have a life even after down.
across talking some real news i'm joined by my guest here in moscow dimitri but he's a political analyst we spoke nick international and in france we have john laughlin he is a lecturer in political philosophy at i says the catholic university. in effect that means you can jump in anytime you want let me go to john 1st in france i came across a wonderful article most of his articles are wonderful. by pat buchanan titled all of the world's problems ours to solve question mark and he says it and i think it's quite artfully written here after an exhausting 2 weeks one is tempted to ask how many quarrels clashes and conflicts can even a superpower manage at once and is it not time for the united states preoccupied with so many crises to begin asking why is this our problem john this that this administration this white house seems to think that it is god ordained that they must solve these problems oh by the way problems that they've created themselves
what's going on here go ahead jim. well i think this idea that. the superpower is responsible for every country in the world is obviously ridiculous but it's even more ridiculous indu of the fact that trump under trump has indeed under a 100 minutes other administrations but under trump these various attempts to as it were solve problems have failed we've seen the failure only last week and as well or where of course the americans wanted to have a military coup and effect room to regime change by a coup which they would have supported if it had succeeded but it didn't succeed and this failure to effect regime change in venezuela comes on the heels of other faith as where the wizards of oz in washington have similarly not managed to achieve the outcome that they wanted the most obvious other examples being syria where of course regime change was the initial goal but where that go.
